Windows explorer?s windows do not show footer...

by Ron Wolpa / November 8, 2009 2:59 AM PST

On previous Windows XP installation I had a resource I considered very useful chiefly as I needed to know the date & hour I took a picture with digital camera(it showed me not the date the file was altered but the date & hour picture was actually taken). It used to appear the time info as well as the model of the camera at the FOOT of every Windows Explorer?s window (I don?t mean Internet explorer). Recently I had to format and reinstall then I noted that no longer have this resource available. As far as I can remember neither I have installed nor configured anything to do this.
Does anyone know what?s supposed to be done to have this feature back again?

I don't remember...

I don't remember this being a feature of XP's Windows Explorer.

But I now have Windows Vista, and there is certainly a section above the Status bar at the foot of Windows Explorer which gives more details than in XP's version.

With your Explorer open, go to the View menu option, (the 3rd one in the row of File - Edit - View - Tools - Help), and look at what options you have for toolbars. Then in the same menu option select "Choose details". That will allow you to choose specific columns in the right hand pane.

I remember that to work when

Some software was installed with some cameras. You can try choosing columns but my memory is that these showed up when I installed something else.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
